There are many recipes for quick sauces that cook in the time it takes to cook the pasta. They are described as sciué sciué, pronounced ‘shway, shway’ which although sounds Chinese is actually a Neapolitan way of saying ‘quick, quick’! Most sauces are made with the abundant local produce so there are many clever inventions using anchovies and lemons. Some are so simple that they are more a combination of ingredients rather than an actual recipe. Each time we spoke to an Amalfitano they would come up with yet another delicious pasta sauce, probably devised by their mother. I couldn’t bring myself to leave them out, so here is a list below.
